Pepsi investigates after IN man reports finding 'skin with hair' in can of pop

SOUTH BEND, Ind. - The maker of a popular soft drink is investigating a South Bend, IN man's report that he found debris in a freshly opened can of soda that he says appears to be a piece of skin with hair.

Joseph Hidey told WNDU-TV  he's concerned he may have swallowed some of the debris he found in a can of Pepsi. He says a representative from an independent lab came to his house Monday to take a piece of what he found to test it.

Pepsi spokeswoman Gina Anderson confirms the company is investigating. She says Pepsi looked at the shipping code associated with the can Hidey purchased and found no similar complaints.

It could be several weeks before the test results come back.
